That’s how the chimney crumbles………

Smoke & Mirrors

“There is in every American, I think, a bit of the old Daniel Boone–who when he could see the smoke rom another chimney, felt himself too crowded and moved himself further into the wilderness.” Hubert H. Humphrey       Oh how quickly times change dear Hubert. The pioneer spirit is, for most, a distant memory, if they ever knew it at all. Below the Camas (Wa.) Paper Mill. The smoke is treated and less smelly than in years past.

Bricks…Worn Out & Vulnerable

“She was built like a brick shithouse”  Anonymous (I have always found this one odd…I have never seen a brick shithouse and some one must have been shit faced when he said it)

“How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and oil, growing, working, dying with hardly a though of wind and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine made beauty, the mineral like quality of life.” Charles Linbergh, 1927

“Men say they love the independence of a woman, but they don’t waste a second demolishing it brick by brick.” Candice Bergen

Photography: Chimney Rock (of sorts)

What's This? SBThis is an interesting spot I came upon, in Oregon. The lower left portion of the natural, small cavern has what appeared to be a man-made oven, fire pit or such. The rocks above were coated from the smoke. I have never noted this spot before in outings to the area, so I was either oblivious (quite possible) or it is a more recent creation, which is odd given the environmental restrictions to the area.
